The Verum Serum blog has a convenient compilation of the "activities" at various Occupy Your City sites. This group of peace loving activists have treated us to following:

4 arsons, 18 assaults, 6 drug counts, 1 fraud, 5 counts of illness or death, 1 murder, 9 public disturbances, 15 rapes or sexual assaults, 3 counts of sedition, 4 suicides or overdoses, 2 thefts (although each documents multiple incidents, so it's really more), and 9 cases of vandalism.

Here's a list of similar incidents at Tea Party rallies:

JohnE, a blogger at Ace of Spades, paid a visit to the Occupy Wall Street meeting last night. They aren't camping anymore, but John reports that they are far from done with their shenanigans. I found this observation particularly good:
What strikes me about this whole "movement" is how similar it is to Kindergarten. I'm so proud of everyone. You are all doing an outstanding job. We're making such amazing progress. They chant the same tired four or five slogans over and over and repeat everything everyone else says. At around 11PM, they made an announcement that everyone would have to "obey the rules and be quiet so we will be allowed to stay." It reminded me of those times your parents would let you stay up later than your normal bedtime if you agreed to behave and be quiet so you wouldn't disrupt their dinner party.
As they say, read the whole thing.

Colbert takes down Occupy Wall Street morons

Selective Outrage

Somebody has come up with an image depicting President Obama as a zombie.

The reaction is predictable:
...widespread outrage...
...shameful and offensive...
...disgusting and violent...
Remember all the similar outrage over these images? Yeah, me neither.
